Honolulu (KHON2) — The University of Hawaii Foundation has raised over $ 1 million to support the Pacific Culinary Institute. Officials say this is due to the Kings Hawaiian and the Hawaiian Foundation.
According to the university, this will help hire a secretary-general to help them lead the Pacific Culinary Institute.
“So we have an academic side to it, and then we need someone to help us move in the direction, and I guess the whole of this big growing center. “Masu,” said Lauren Tamamoto, coordinator of the Center for Culinary Innovation.
According to Tamamoto, the university is currently in Phase 2 of construction, with a demonstration auditorium studio, a specialty restaurant and a culinary innovation center under construction.
“That’s why I’m thinking of doing more science classes,” says Tamamoto. “We’re going to see what people in the industry need right now, so there may be more specialized development here.”
Mr. Tamamoto said he has a background in math and science, but he fell in love with cooking. She said it’s cool to combine her love for those subjects to make a delicious meal for people to eat.
The university said these additions would allow students to have a more hands-on experience and better grades in their careers after graduating from the cooking program.
“We have a restaurant under construction, then a culinary innovation center,” says Tamamoto. “That is, this is for students beyond the two-year program.”
Construction is expected to be completed in the fall of 2022, according to the university.
